The story behind hurling’s new yellow sliotar

Submitted on Monday, 20/01/2020

Hurling fans will be aware of media coverage around the introduction of a yellow sliotar for the 2020 championships. There have been increasing concerns about variability among sliotars – some would travel further than others when struck, for example. This new yellow sliotar is fully digitised, trackable and it was developed by Insight researchers. You can read all about it on RTE Brainstorm in a piece written by Professor Kieran Moran here!
